That's great "pilgrimage" music. What is the name of that piece?

Before it's all said and done you might consider putting pictures from this week to some Jewish (or Israeli) sounding music. Maybe they'll be dancing before it's over? ;)

"GAFCON in Jerusalem: A Ministry of Reconciliation "

OK, I will bite, how does one reconcile at a conference that excludes so many, and includes the belligerent comments of ABp Akinola? With whom are they reconciling?

Nicely done video in any case.

In these videos we have high church, low church, all kinds of cultures and races, all nationalities and political parties. I cannot under emphasize what we are seeing in this action of reconciliation, even just between the evangelical Americans alone.

I'm not sure what you mean by disparaging the Anglican Archbishop of Nigeria, but it sounds like you haven't had the chance to meet him yet. I hope you do get to meet him. The caricature created by the progressive activists does not fit the man. You'll see that for yourself when you meet him - especially if you go over to Nigeria on a short-term mission and experience the Christian community there. That might be helpful to understanding what he says - what he really says - and who he is.

Archbishop Orombi is another leader who is a good man to meet and talk to. I hope you get a chance to meet him as well someday.

And that's the point of this gathering - meeting face to face, praying together, reasoning together, worshiping together, fellowshipping together, building relationships and restoring old friendships - as well as bringing the laity into the leadership.

BB, I'm with Jill, above--what's the music underlying this video? It's beautiful, and I would like to find it.

Thanks for posting this. So many of my classmates from Trinity there...
